Are you looking for single core or dual core?

Nvidia or ATI?

How much you willing to spend? You can defintaly use an upgrade or 2. I would say get 2 gigs or RAM and a new Motherboard that supports your CPU and pci express, than get a X1900 or a 7900 video card.

videoslave he said he is not gonna spend more than 100 or £150 at the most, and i suppose that in dollars are 250. Thunder,if you want to keep the same mobo, you can get an X800GTO, and 1 gb RAM. That would be enough for latest games.

thanks for the help guys, i think my motherboard only supports AGP, and will the x800GTO be worth the cash over the Radeon 9800 PRO

I would get the Nvidia 7600GS, and another gig of Ram. You'll be happy with it.

Admittedly that one has a fan and your one doesn't look like it does, and it's not dual-DVI like yours. But that one's in stock and over £30 cheaper.
